Baby Silvery Gibbon – level 1

19-10-2018 07:00

This happens in England. A cute baby silvery gibbon is born at a zoo. This is good news. There are less than 2,500 of the endangered animals in nature. Zoo keepers do not know if this baby is male or female. The baby is too small to know.

Many babies are born at this zoo right now. This baby is the newest one. The zoo is having a baby boom.

Difficult words: silvery gibbon (a type of small grey ape – an animal that is related to people), endangered (when a type of plant or animal is in danger of dying out), baby boom (when many babies are born at the same time).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
